It's very hot in Rome in the summer.
It's too hot in Rome in the summer.
It's now too hot to play football.
It's now very hot to play football.

Very simply makes the adjective or adverb stronger. Too means more than enough, or so much that something else happens as a result.

Next
The messenger will arrive presently.
The messenger will arrive just now.

If we are speaking of a near and immediate future time, we must use presently, immediately, in a minute, or soon. Just now refers to present past time, and not to future time: He's not at home just now (= at this moment). He left just now (= a little time ago).

Next
Zoe scarcely comes to see me now.
Zoe rarely comes to see me now

Scarcely isn't synonymous with rarely. Rarely means not often, scarcely means not quite: I had scarcely finished when he came.

Next
I hear that he's not so rich.
I hear that he's not very rich.

We can't use not so in the sense of not very. The expression He's not so rich implies a comparison: He's not so rich as you are.

Next
Last night I went to bed late.
Last night I went to bed lately.

The opposite of early is late, not lately. Lately means in recent times: I haven't been there lately.
